As spring slowly draws to a close, the all-important phase arrives for the students of the graduating classes. The school-leaving examination. After several weeks of eternal learning, there is only one great wish for most of the students when they successfully complete their schooling. To party together with the best friends from the class or year and to celebrate this graduation properly.

The Covid-19 pandemic spoils the party mood

There have not been many reasons that would have prevented young adults from celebrating their graduation – unless a pandemic would lay almost the entire night and party life in the whole wide world flat within a very short time. Unfortunately, this is exactly the unimaginable scenario we have had to live through for more than a year now. While most of us have probably had the graduation trip for a little while now, it has been hitting students pretty hard in this regard. Of course, there are far greater fates in connection with the pandemic, but in retrospect, one must certainly say that the loss of our graduation trip would certainly have hurt us very much.

What party trips have been “most wanted” so far?

We all know them, the famous party meccas of Europe. You can find them from Spain to Turkey and so far, there was more than enough party for everyone. These were the top hotspots in Europe until now:

  • Lloret de Mar
  • Calella
  • Mallorca
  • Rimini
  • Novalja
  • Split
  • Zrce
  • Cyprus
  • Gold Beach in Bulgaria

In addition to the usual bus trips or air travel to these well-known locations, for sometimes now there have also been individual travel companies that have specialized specifically in the concept of the graduation trip. Here the pupils must pay a relatively high fixed price, to be able to experience afterwards “unlimited party fun”. I (Janis) also took part in such a trip.

From my own experience: Here often much more is promised than is finally kept. 

Do you have a plan for the summer of 2021?

Of course, BOATICO has an idea for you! Unfortunately, big clubs and crowded halls will be closed in many places for a longer period of time this summer due to the pandemic. But that does not necessarily mean that your Matura trip or Abifahrt must fall through. And while we are about water – wouldn’t a graduation trip on the water be something? If you cannot go to the party on land, then you will just have to get it to your boat!

What could a graduation trip at BOATICO look like?

So, we must ask you – how do you want your graduation trip to be? We can offer you sailboats or catamarans including skippers, with which you can then set sail as a fleet. How many boats are part of your fleet, depends on the number of people you want to have with you, but there is no limit.

Our insider tip, however, is another: In Croatia, Greece, or Turkey you can book so-called gulets (more about this on our site), on which the whole class or depending on the boat even up to two classes have space. And now comes the highlight of the gulets! Here the whole crew is already included in the price! Now you can decide if you want to have half or full board and if you want to have a beverage package per person. So, you can book an all-in package from around 700 Euro per person. There is then food, drinks, and a whole lot of fun. 

On deck nothing stands in the way of your creativity, you can host a theme party, a 90’s night and many more fancy things.
